  • Jenny's visit to the Other Realm...

    After a thoroughly enjoyable sleep-over at Jenny's house, Sabrina begins to feel obliged to invite Jenny over but is terrified of her finding out just how abnormal her home life is. Hilda and Zelda promise to act normally, and Sabrina agrees to give it a try. Things however take a turn for the worse when just before Jenny arrives, a repairman turns up to repair the clothes dryer. Of course it's no ordinary clothes dryer and the repairman has a large bushy tail. When a lint gremlin escapes from the dryer and starts running around the house chased by the repairman, Sabrina starts to panic. At that very moment, Jenny arrives. Hilda has true to form gone rather over-the-top with her costume and hairstyle which is preposterously out of date. Sabrina gives her a list of acceptable topics for discussion over dinner, and Hilda takes a delight in discussing the first of them, towels, ad absurdum. A bit later on Jenny heads off in search of a towel in the linen closet and ends up getting whisked to the Other Realm where she meets Drell. When Drell discovers she's a mortal, he turns her into a grasshopper. When Sabrina follows her in, Drell gives her the grasshopper in a jar. Given a hint to look for loopholes in the rules by the rules bearer, Sabrina tries to convince Jenny that she was dreaming so that she can return to the mortal world.moreless

  • This episode starts off with Sabrina full of doubts about inviting her best friend Jenny for a sleepover. During the visit, Jenny accidentaly goes to the Other Realm through the linen closet and Sabrina has to convince Jenny that the whole experience wasmoreless

    This episode was one of my many favourites of the series. Even though it was an early episode, the quality is extremeley good and the plot is full of adventure, all about Jenny stumbling upon the doorway to the Other Realm and suddenly finding herself in a strange new world. When Drell finds out that a mortal has entered the Realm, he turns Jenny into a grasshopper and the only way Sabrina can save her is to convince Jenny that she was having a dream, that she wasn\'t really there. As the rulekeeper says, \"every rule has a loophole!.moreless
